Pav Bhaji


3 medium potatoes (chopped)
1/2 cauliflower (grated / chopped))
1/2 cabbage (chopped)
1 beetroot (chopped) - this is optional. I add it for color.
8 to 10 strings of french beans
3 carrots (grated / chopped)
1 medium onion (chopped)
1 cup of corn kernels
2 medium onions (finely chopped)
1 tomato - finely chopped
1 bell pepper / capsicum (finely chopped)
3 teaspoons ginger garlic paste
3 teaspoons pav bhaji masala
2 teaspoons paprika powder
salt as per taste
4 tablespoons of oil
2 tablespoons butter - optional


In a pressure cooker add all the ingredients upto corn kernels. Add 1 1/2 cups of water and let it cook for 2 to 3 whistles. Once this is cooked - mash the veggies with a potato masher.

In a karahi, add the oil. When it gets hot add the finely chopped onions along with the ginger garlic paste. Fry till the onions turn golden. Add the tomatoes and the bell pepper and stir fry for 5 minutes. Add the pav bhaji masala and paprika powder and mix well. To this mixture add the cooked and mashed veggies. Mix it well - till the veggies and the spice mixture are totally incorporated. Add salt to taste and bring this mixture to a boil and then simmer on medium low flame for 15 to 20 minutes. Add the butter and let it melt.

Garnish with chopped cilantro and chopped onions and serve it hot with Bombay Ladi-Pav.
